Hiking strategy developed

A 10-year WA Hiking Strategy to ensure Western Australians continue to enjoy the great outdoors in a safe and sustainable way has been released recently.

It complements other trail strategies developed in WA over the past 25 years for areas such as mountain biking and horse trails.

The new strategy was developed by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions and has had significant community input. It focuses on traditional bushwalking and the emerging growth area of trail running.
